Jen’s Fauxtato Salad

Photo Credit: Jennifer Guest Stockinger for Bariatric Foodie When I think of barbecues (or “cookouts” as we call them in Baltimore), I think of grilled meat and great cold sides – chief among them, potato salad! I know a lot of you don’t eat white starches like potatoes. I don’t for the most part. Every now and again I’ll have …

Veggie Frittata

~~posted by Jen Lots of times I steam fresh or frozen veggies for a side dish, and inevitably when I clean out the fridge, there is always a sad little container of leftover vegetables.  Today was my weekly fridge cleaning day, and I found just such a container of mixed vegetables (peas, corn, carrots, & green beans), maybe a cup …

Cookies and Cream Protein Frozen Pie

Soooo…remember way back when we did the poll on frozen pies? And I told you my divas were mad at all of you because they wanted the cookies and cream one? Well the other day I noticed my puppy was missing. On the kitchen counter was my batter bowl and under it was a note that said, “Make our pie …

Curried Chicken Salad

I dunno how it happened…but it did. Maybe you over-cooked. Maybe the family wasn’t feeling your WLS friendly dish. Maybe, like me, you get sick of eating the same thing very, very fast.

Rocky Road Protein Frozen Pie

Cuz it’s a ROCKY ROAD baby! So here’s the quick and dirty version of how this dessert came to be. It started in church (doesn’t everything?). I was greeter so essentially my job is to hand out the church programs to people coming in. There is also this magazine for kids and pre-teens called “Pockets from the Upper Room.” Well …
